Hello Gwagner,                                                        
         I don't think I've heard from you before. I had his address
and written him before but didn't hear from him. I will try to call
him when I can figure out the time differnce. Don't want to wake him
at 3AM. Thank you so much Gwagner! I'll get back to you if I have any
luck.  Bluestreak

         Hi. I have good news. Thanks for the lead of his phone
number. I called him at 3PM(9PM Italy time). I was able to speak with
him for about a half hour and never have spoken with a more gracious,
sweet-natured, cultured, and gentle gentlemen. He gave me his
birthday, May 3,1922 in Florence,Italy. So thank you so much. Could
you please post your comment as an answer so I can rate & tip you.

Hello Bluestreak,

Thank you so much for your note! I'm glad you made contact with Mr.
Quercetani. I also went ahead and emailed the secretary of an
organization he is honorary president of
( and, not
surprisingly, he told me the same date, May, 3, 1922.

Still waiting to hear back from the Lasker Society. I'll let you know
once they get back to me.

Best wishes,

Gwagner was able to obtain my subject's address & phond number. I was
able to sucessfully use the phone number to resolve the question &
gwagner was also able to resolve the question independently on his own
as well!  Excellent working together as a team, I would say. Anxious
to have him tackle my other questions! By the way, I have improved the
prices of those questions that I'm most anxious to put behind me. Can
you be persuaded?  Thank you so very much gwagner for your creative
initiative and fortitude!  Much appreciation! Bluestreak

Hi Bluestreak,

I wasn't able to find Roberto Quercetani's exact date of birth, but lists his home
address and phone number, in case that helps.
